Album Review

The more things change in music, the more they stay the same. The alternative rockers of the 1990s may have caused so-called corporate rockers like Poison and Bon Jovi to become less visible, but at the same time, the worship of 1970s baby boomer culture was alive and well among post-baby boomers. In 1998, one of the most memorable examples of 1970s-flavored music came from the New Radicals. Although Radicals singer/leader Gregg Alexander was quick to espouse a left-wing point of view, Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too doesn't beat listeners over the head with a sociopolitical agenda. Nor is the CD an exercise in angry 1990s angst rock. Rather, Alexander's band is a congenial and highly melodic throwback to the rock and blue-eyed soul of the early to mid-'70s. Alexander's vocals have a very Mick Jagger-ish quality, but while the Rolling Stones were a rock & roll band that occasionally dabbled in soul and funk, the Radicals favor pop/rock that is consistently mindful of classic Northern soul. Hook-happy offerings like "Jehovah Made This Whole Joint for You," "Flowers," and "Mother We Just Can't Get Enough" give the impression that Alexander holds the Stones and the artists of Motown Records in equally high regard. Without question, Brainwashed was among the more promising releases of late 1998.

Different to You only get what you give....

If you're buying this album hoping to get more of the same pop/rock that is 'You only get what you give' then don't bother. On the other hand, if you fancy some quite inspired, catchy tunes, sometimes similar to the drawl of Gomez then be my guest.....it's great in here.

Decade old genius.

An inspiring masterpiece. A bold claim i know, but listen to this album a few times & you'll see what i mean. I got this album 10 years ago, & it remains as beautiful today as it was then. I've never quite decided whether or not it was a good thing they only released the 1 album, its certainly left me wanting more for nearly 10 years. Writing for Ronan Keating was never really what i was hoping for - Although would i have felt differently had the man himself been behind the mic? Greg Alexander left quite an impression with this one & only album. For me the words & the songs helped me through some bad times. I've enjoyed this album through many good times. Needless to say i love it. This is one for a long summers drive, or a break up, or a philosophers lunch break. Genius. Buy it.

this album is a great album, if anyone out there reading this is glatonbury festival goer you'll know that the great song you get what you give is perfect to sit in the sun and relax with your friends. This album is a perfect mix of chilled out music and up beat, in the album there isn't one song which you need to question. Everyone needs to have this album in their collection.
